than the world thought before. let's go to our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence. chris, does the u.s. still think north korea is going to test the missile? >> reporter: they think it is a matter of time at this point, although obviously they would prefer he not conduct that test. they have seen north korea move two missiles to the east coast, they have seen him raise the launcher and then lower it, but they're not sure if that means kim may be backing off his threat or if they're just testing out before firing. key thing to look for, tomorrow night, sunday night our time, it is already april 15th in korea. that's the birthday of north korea's founder. a lot of folks we talk to say they expect to see a test on or before that date. >> what about the new intelligence assessment coming from the penalty gone that north korea may be further along now than we thought in terms of actually being able to put a nuclear war head on a missile? >> reporter: that's right. that was part of a bigger assessment that came from the defense intelligence agency. part of their job is to look at the missi

, surprising, chris lawrence, who has been on the campus where dzhokhar attended campus at the university of massachusetts at dartmouth, students there have seen him over the last several days going to the gym, just being on campus. >> we know that investigators were actually there because they were looking for an individual who is a friend of the younger brother's, so that was one of the reasons you saw a heavy presence there. that's a big question that investigators are asking themselves. why if they had such a good plan going into this attack, why didn't they have an equally good plan getting out of the attack. one of the hypothesis is that in fact, somebody was supposed to help them, somebody was supposed to provide them money or help them get out and somehow that person failed. so that's a big part of the equation, because even though the device was crude, it was sophisticated enough to detonate and that's why you speak to these experts, they say frankly, it's the first successful attack of its kind in america since 9/11. >> we obviously don't want to go down the road too far specula

. wolf? >> tom foreman, thanks for that explanation. our own pentagon correspondent, chris lawrence, went over the videos of this season with a former atf assistant director michael bouchard. >> can they take that video from the second scene and start to build the case backwards to photos like these? >> yes. what the investigators will do will look at the cameras an hour and a half, two hours before the bomb blasts to see who was in the area at the time. checking it every 15, 20 minutes. if they see the same person in the same pictures, it's not likely they were there to watch someone else finish the race. >> can we tell pretty much where that first bomb was plant? >> yes, in this picture between the light pole and the building, you can see how heavily concentrated the people are. so if someone left a backpack or duffel bag on the ground, people wouldn't really notice it. >> is there any way the bomb could have been placed on the curb? >> it's highly unlikely the bomb was placed on the curb. because when the bomb went off, this were runners who were going by at the same time. and they wer
